TAKE OFF Half Year Tourist Arrivals Break 1.5m Barrier

Lanzarote has enjoyed a record breaking first half of the year, as total tourist arrivals soared above the 1.5 million mark during the period from January to June 2017.

The UK market, Lanzarote´s largest, accounted for 46% of these arrivals - as a total of 699,930 British holidaymakers touched down at Arrecife airport, an increase of 11% on 2016 figures. And tourist numbers from Germany, the island´s second largest market grew too, up by 16% year on year.

During June itself, foreign tourist arrivals climbed by 9.3% - with the key British and German markets both up by 12% and 18% respectively. The only markets to record negative figures were Holland and Belgium - both down by 10% and 23% respectively.
